Is it a bird?

The US defense department has released its latest surveillance weapon. Hundreds of Bald Eagles were covertly approached and asked to be more than just an emblem on a dollar bill said General R.R. Kimmmby of the USAF.

They all agreed and now they are patrolling the skies over the US equipped with the latest cameras and infrared sensors. It is a triumph of man - eagle cooperation said the General at a speech given yesterday at a CORC meeting.

Capable of swooping down and into people's windows at night is what makes this the perfect weapon said General Kimmmby. When questioned by human rights activists that a large eagle swooping in and landing on your dinner table might be an invasion of privacy, Gen Kimmmby said,"the innocent will not mind a Big Bald Eagle watching them!

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.
